             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug

    Affects Versions: 2.2.6, 2.1.8, 2.0.12

Hello

In its version 2.2.6, the CXF bundles have a certain number of imports; some of them are optional
and some other mandatory.

One that's mandatory is org.apache.xml.security, but I have the impression that it actually
is not: I've modified the bundle so this dependency is optional, and it still is working very
well in my use cases.

More interestingly, org.apache.ws.security* is already marked as resolution:=optional (see
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cxf/tags/cxf-2.2.6/distribution/bundle/minimal/pom.xml where
it's clearly visible)

Would it be possible to also mark the import of org.apache.xml.security* as optional as well?

--

This request exists because there are many Web Services that don't actually require any security
policy (stock ticker, weather, ...) and it's a pity to require to have it if not needed. Mostly
that the org.apache.xml.security itself needs many, many more dependencies.
